in benghazi but secretary clinton will give a classified account of the attacks on the u.s. consulate in libya. witnesses tell cbs news that there was never an anti-american protest outside of the consulate. instead they say it came under planned attack. that's in direct contradiction to the administration's account of the incident. it comes at a time when there are calls for more information from capitol hill and complaints that the administration has not been forthright. >> i'm just stunned and appalled that there wasn't better security for all of the american personnel at that consulate given the high threat environment. >> reporter: now, under law state must establish a panel to investigate the attacks, report to congress within 60 days. today secretary of state hillary clinton will outline what she is and is not willing to share. what's clear, charlie is that the public won't get a detailed account of what happened until after the presidential election. >> margaret, brennan thank you. john miller is with us. good morning. who is this man? >> he's a former al qaeda member who was in guanta
